You know your players don't respect you as a coach when they're the ones yelling at you.

It wasn't even an argument, it was a flat out yell fest.
If someone did that to Gibbs, Gibbs would have his ass riding the pine. Billick just took it.

Re: Brian Billick: This Year's First Coaching Casualty

Billick's offensive genius in Minnesota consisted of telling his QB to air it out to Moss, and if he was covered, throw it to Cris Carter underneath. I heard somewhere that his average offensive ranking in Baltimore was 23rd - not exactly what I would call genius.

Well, it is not uncommon for offensive guru's to fail as a head coach...he need to go back to being an OC.

That's what I find so funny. He had Moss and Chris Carter, two HOF wr's. Plus the o-line was really strong at that time. I heard last night that Josh McDaniels is going to get an interview for the Balt. job. The guy is like 32 years old. WTF are they thinking???

Looks like we have the 2nd coach that's getting fired. I just heard on the radio that Cam Cameron got the ax. Shocker.

Re: Brian Billick: This Year's First Coaching Casualty

Here's the link; Cam Cameron is now standing behind Billick in the unemployment line.
ESPN - Cameron out as Dolphins coach - NFL

I guess these two can get together, pound a few hundred beers, and reminisce about their epic week 15 battle. I'm sure that will be a good time.

No big surprise with Cameron. With Parcells coming in you knew he would be looking to clean house and put his own stamp on things.

Re: Brian Billick: This Year's First Coaching Casualty

Billick deserves some credit, he did win a super bowl. And last year's team was 13-3, though they flailed in the playoffs. Sometimes organizations need change & they know they can't go forward w/the guy they have. Seems Baltimore had gotten a bit out of control this year w/players saying whatever they felt about the staff. I won't be surprised if the new coach wants to clean house a little, including Ray Lewis. Ozzie Newsome & the owner might want to keep him though.

Re: Brian Billick: This Year's First Coaching Casualty

Billick deserves very little credit, as in the years the Ravens had success, it was their defense that carried them. For an offensive "genius", that's pretty bad. I wonder if Rex Ryan will get an interview as well...then he can bring in his recently fired brother to be D-Coord.

As far as Cameron goes, it was a matter of time. I wonder what Big Tuna has up his sleeve...

Yeah, but he won the super bowl in his second year with the team because he had an all time great defense, an incredible special teams unit, and a ton of luck. They went 5 games without an offensive touchdown and still managed a 12-4 (I think) record even though they were in the same division as the Titans who were a powerhouse at the time. I don't think it was Brian "the offensive guru" Billick's plan to win any games that way they just sort of lucked out and got just enough offense to sneak by some teams; but luck like thay doesn't last long.
I live within walking distance to the raven's purple mess of a stadium and most of my friends root for them but not a single one of them gives Billick more than a tiny bit of credit for anything they accomplished over the past eight or nine years. Like SouperMeister said, his great scheme in Minn. consisted of two great WR, a solid O-line, and a QB who could throw it really far down field.

I heard his brother is most likely going to the Jets, because he and Mangini used to work in NE together. ESPN.com made it seem like it was more or less a done deal already.

SI.com - NFL - Dolphins fire Cameron - Thursday January 3, 2008 9:19AM

And Cameron is gone too. There's a shocker...
